December was a busy month for everyone in town including the folks at the Fairfield Library. We sponsored a logo design contest which ended on Tuesday, Dec. 4, and was won by Fairfield Junior High School student Madysen Farris; continued the Book Bingo which just ended on Thursday, Jan. 3, and was won by Cathy Henry; had a great (freezing) time at our decorated campsite at the Fairfield State Park on Saturday, Dec.  8; hosted an Intro to Excel Adult Technology class on Thursday, Dec. 13; enjoyed Christmas at the Library on Friday, Dec. 14; as well as regularly scheduled Wednesday Story Times with Mary King. We hope that all our friends in the community enjoyed these events as much as we did.

We also finished our year with some wonderful volunteers and want to recognize them so that our patrons can thank them when visiting the library. Ann Lovell, Lupe Gonzales, Debbie Tugwell, Elia Vasquez (who was a tremendous help during the summer weekly reading program), and Sophie Espinosa made it possible to provide smiling service to our community. If you, or someone you know, is interested in donating some free time to the library, please check our webpage to learn more about volunteer activities at, and send us a note!

Cassie Rattolee from Jewett is also a great help to us as a member of the Friends of the Fairfield Library group. She, along with other volunteers and Friends, are working on conducting a semi-annual book sale in the Community Room early this year, possibly in March. A date will be announced next month. The Friends group, headed by Angela Oglesbee, plans to expand their involvement in the library this year, especially planning some fundraising activities.  We are looking forward to expanding our programs for adults in 2019. In January, Director Gary Wiggins continues assisting with the free Tech Time, and Session Two of the Intro to Excel is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15. All computer lab seats have been filled for this class, but if you have a laptop
